  • Laravel 7.25 or newer
  • PHP 7.4.0 or newer


1. Composer

composer require bensampo/laravel-embed

2. Include styles

Somewhere inside the <head> element of the document, include:

<x-embed-styles />

If you'd prefer to include the styles in your own CSS file, you may copy the contents of styles.blade.php.

3. Publish views (optional)

If you'd like to edit any of the views you may publish them:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="BenSampo\Embed\EmbedServiceProvider"

Once published they can be found in /resources/views/vendor/embed/.


Simply include the following blade component in your view making sure to pass the url attribute.

The url should be the public URL for the page you're trying to embed.

<x-embed url="" />

Setting the aspect ratio

By default most embedded services are shown at a ratio of 16:9. Some services may override this if they have a more appropriate default. However, you can always change this by passing in a ratio to the aspect-ratio attribute.

<x-embed url="" aspect-ratio="4:3" />

The aspect ratio is maintained at different viewport sizes.


If no service exists to handle the URL a fallback view is rendered. You can customize this by publishing the views and editing /resources/views/vendor/embed/services/fallback.blade.php.


A validation rule can be used to check for a supported service in a given URL.

use BenSampo\Embed\Rules\EmbeddableUrl;

public function store(Request $request)
    $this->validate($request, [
        'url' => ['required', new EmbeddableUrl],

You may specify a list of allowed services using the allowedServices method.

use BenSampo\Embed\Services\Vimeo;
use BenSampo\Embed\Services\YouTube;
use BenSampo\Embed\Rules\EmbeddableUrl;

public function store(Request $request)
    $this->validate($request, [
        'url' => [
            (new EmbeddableUrl)->allowedServices([
